Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf - Lois Ehlert

This is great informative book. The book describes the process of seeds blowing from a sugar maple tree and landing on the ground in the winter and growing in the Spring. Nursery workers come to the woods and dig up the tree sprouts and transplanted them and watch them grow until they sell them to a garden center. At the garden center, people can buy the trees and then they plant them. I would use this in a 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade classroom as an informative text to teach students how trees are started and how people are able to buy them. I would have the students sequence the main events. I would also do a project where I would grow a plant and transplant it.
